    If you've never played a MegaMan Star Force game, or perhaps even if you happened to like the Battle Network games but shied away from it in the middle of its long, successful run, MegaMan Star Force 2 and its prequel are worth a shot. If you played and enjoyed the first MegaMan Star Force, you'll find more of the same fun here.
  2. The gameplay changes hardly justify a sequel so soon after the first Star Force, but series fans should have fun regardless. [July 2008, p.87]
  3. An improvement on the same old formula. It plays exactly the same in the overall sense, but it refines things a little, patches in a new story, and generally upgrades things to be better suited to the DS system, avoiding gimmicks in favor of polishing the gameplay and graphics. To casual players, it is mostly the same game.

    If you absolutely loved the Battle Network games or played the first Star Force to death, then this is probably a game that you'll want to look into - it's a solid title with a lot to offer. [July 2008, p.83]
  5. Mega Man: Star Force 2 offers a new form of RPG gameplay for the series but it doesn't stack up as well as other Mega Man games
  6. Bad graphics and repetitive play make Mega Man's latest adventure a dull one.
  7. Sadly, for returning fans there is very little here that is worth a purchase seeing as the rest feels like a rehash of the first game.
  8. The story is awful, and the gameplay isn't solid enough to carry the weight of an entire RPG.

    There are plenty of other games on Nintendo’s little handheld that warrant your money over yet another Capcom rehash.

    After six nearly identical Mega Man Battle Network games and one followup that was presumed to reboot the series (but didn't, really), is it any surprise that Mega Man Star Force 2 is pretty much the same game that Capcom has been churning out for the past seven years?
  11. No matter how hard you try, you're going to have trouble having fun with Star Force 2. It does a number of things right, but sadly its battle mechanic is too huge a problem to overlook.
  12. Both versions of Mega Man Star Force 2, Zerker X Ninja and Zerker X Saurian are prime examples of milking a franchise for all its worth.

    If Capcom spices up the battle system a bit and hires some new writers, they may be able to create another Mega Man game worth playing...but until then, I'm keeping Star Force off the air.
